This family-run café is arguably the best place to get coffee in Tulum. Working with an Italian roaster, Ki’bok sources its coffee from two proprietary blends: their hot coffee is a blend of beans from Veracruz, and the iced coffee comes from Chiapas. The iced coffee is a standout, especially on hot Tulum days: it’s rich but not bitter or acidic. (They sell bags of beans, should you fall in love.) Located on Centauro Sur in downtown Tulum, the coffee shop has cozy nooks for reading or lounging, and there’s also a wine-and-liquor bar. There’s also a selection of pastries here, all made in-house. Originally a small storefront, Ki’bok has expanded with a back room, kitchen, and garden area in the back with more seating and plenty of greenery. The owners—eight family members—have also opened a budget-friendly micro-hotel upstairs, for those who are looking for a stylish place to stay in downtown Tulum. Run by the owners of Nest, a hotel on beach road, the four rooms are cozy and beautifully appointed.
